the "terro" 2.97 bottle that you place drops on the cardboard tear offs is great to slide around under the range and fridge and inside the cabinet area under the sink and works great and doesnt break the bank.

Yep, Terro works and it works fast. Had a major ant problem one morning back in the spring, got the Terro out and the ants were gone by evening. Make sure you put enough liquid out to saitsfy them. i also used a piece of foil, crimped it up like a little bowl about the size of a bottle cap, filled it up with Terro and didn't have to keep reapplying to the littel squares that come with the product.

This works great, just takes a little longer than some commercial poisons.

Borax or boric acid mixed with powdered sugar gets them too.

Just read an article today that says salt will repel them as well.

I've had ants ALL over my yard. not fire ants the littel black ones.

I've been putting out the Terro and that has helped but I think I had quite a colony going under the shed
